Flowers Just for You, Mom!

     Although my mom has been gone for more than 20 years, I still think of her every Mother's Day and, because I can't make cards for her, I make them for my daughter, my DIL and my GDIL in her honor.  Love you, Mom.

     This darling image is from Gerda Steiner Designs and it's the image for the May Progressive Challenge.


     I started with the sketch from Creates and Makes
and colors from the challenge at 
The Outlawz, where we
have to use 3 out of the 5.  I used 4 of the 5.

     

     I used a combination of ProMarkers and chalk markers to color the image, then die cut it with 2 sizes of stitched circle dies from Die-namics.  The scalloped stitched die I used for the purple frame is from Memory Box.  

     I wrapped two different sheer ribbons around the card front, then tied a quad-loop bow using those same ribbons and my bow maker.  Finally, I printed, hand-cut, and matted the sentiment before adding it to the design.

     Challenges:

     That's all I have for today but I seem to be settling back into my routine of crafting and posting nearly every day so thanks for hanging in there with me.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
